Arsenal are currently in the midst of their usual injury crisis, with key stars such as Mesut Ozil, Laurent Koscielny, Jack Wilshere, and Aaron Ramsey all missing.

The Gunners will at least however, be able to call on Walcott and Chamberlain for their Premier League match against fellow strugglers Liverpool.

The English duo have been absent from training this week, but passed late fitness tests to ensure their availability.

Walcott is unlikely to start the game, although an appearance from the bench is definitely a possibility. His 21-year-old compatriot may be required from the very start though, with options in midfield extremely limited for Arsene Wenger.

Francis Coquelin may be handed his first start of the season after being recalled from loan, but if Chamberlain is fully fit then the French manager may want a little more flair and penetration in the middle of the park.
